A Few Thoughts On Film

Good movies are entertaining.
Great movies are engrossing.
The greatest films are alienating.

We go to the cinema to escape the lack of miracles in our lives.
We go to the cinema to see miracles occur in the lives of others.
We become changed by the cinema when, instead of providing that escape, we are shown how beautiful the world is regardless, and are reminded of our place in this beautiful world as conscious entities.

To be confronted is to think,
and I want to think,
so let greatness confront me
lest my mind become someone else's.
